Konsa probably would have figured too if he hadn't been shunted to right back so often.

Agreed, not his fault. He struggled badly without Mings in the early games but settled down to form a solid partnership with Torres, remember how strong our offside line was at one point.

Moving him to RB did impact his form and our defence generally. He is rotten at RB

He's not rotten at right back at all. He's done ok there when called upon.


Played right back when we beat Ci£eh and both Arsenal games, so not too rotten at right back.

Yeah this idea that Konsa at right back is some disaster, Unai's 'Reo-Coker' moment of madness, is such a red herring. He had a bad game against Spurs there, but everyone had a bad game that day.

Did pretty well against Vicinius there for England too.

Got to be Ollie. Not often we have someone vying for the golden boot. Into double figures for assists too. His all round game is pretty much at elite level now. Never gets injured either. His durability is incredible.

1 - Watkins
2 - McGinn
3 - Martinez

He was atrocious against Brentford as well. Worst player on the pitch.

But has generally been very good.

I mean, I do find it amazing that some won't hear a word against Cash (who I love! But who has had a good handful of dodgy performances this year!), but make up their minds about Konsa at right-back and then don't accept any evidence to the contrary. All about opinions of course, as they say, I just can't fathom what other people are watching sometimes.

He's had some solid games at right back, but too many when he's not very good, and he doesn't have Cash's ability to get forward. He's an excellent centre back, and I just feel like we lose out twice when he's at right back.

His job is to not get forward as much as Cash, it's literally the reason for the selection. He mostly does the shuffling-over-to-make-a-third-CB thing.

I know that. It's part of the reason we don't look as good when he plays there.

My vote goes to Ollie, should also be in contention for  Premier League player.
